Ingredients

2/3 cup water 170 mL
1/8 tsp salt 0.4 g
1 tsp olive oil 5 mL
2/3 cup couscous, whole wheat 100 g

Method

Pour the water into a saucepan, then bring it to a rolling boil. Add the salt and oil. Remove the saucepan from heat then slowly pour in the couscous while stirring gently. Cover for 2 min, until the couscous has swelled and all the water is absorbed. Add a little more water if the couscous looks too dry. Serve.

Remarks

1-2 pats of butter can also be added, if you wish.

I am allergic to Wheat and Gluten, so I purchase Lundberg Brown Rice Couscous which is really very good. I would never use this recipe though as I can't eat it.
